Yes! Then there's all the other great singers from up that way that Simon Tough might like to know about if he doesn't already - Lizzie Higgins, Jeannie Robertson, Stanley Robertson, Lucy Stewart, Elizabeth Stewart, John Strachan, etc. More songs... 'Johnny o' Braidislea' is around Monymusk. Then Huntly-wise there is of course 'Bogie's Bonnie Belle'. And too many more songs to mention. As someone from a different part of Scotland, I'm always amazed at how rich the north-east song tradition seems... long may it thrive!
